We all love going to a salon and getting a royal treatment by getting our nails and hair done. But we are either low on money or don't want to step out of our house and get our nails done. So currently if you find that you are in a similar position and desperately want the best pedicure at home, look no further. All you need is a few tools. Here is how you can do a DIY at-home pedicure. 

Step 1 - Trim your nails

This is the first step in DIY at-home pedicure. Don't cut your nails till they hurt you, instead, trim and shape your nails. Let the nail polish remover do its thing and trim your nails properly. Also, make sure that you cut your nails straight and avoid cutting the edges. Use a nail filer to give your nails your choice of shape.

Step 2 - Get a foot bath

This is the second step in DIY at-home pedicure. Fill your bathtub or take a bucket full of lukewarm water and fill water to fill up your ankles at least. You can add bath salts to the water. If you love essential oils, you can add a couple drops to the same. You can get a massage by adding some pebbles to the water. Soak your feet for at least 15 minutes and wipe off with a towel.

Meanwhile, start scrubbing your foot with a foot scrub for a couple minutes. This will help remove the dead skin cells. Later push back your cuticles gently with a cuticle pusher.
